Throw it in the crock pot on New Year's Eve before you go out, and dinner the next day will be ready; all you have to do is fix the mashed potatoes. Slow, low cooking makes a roast that is very tender. Delicious!! I used to manage a doctor's office, and our Blue Cross rep told me that her family made this every year for New Year's.
